Intel is currently working on a "Super Resolution
" technology that can uncover hidden information in digital images and videos and create output files of significantly higher resolution and quality. The technology may well one day help to reduce the bandwidth required to transmit video files, and also to enhance the quality of digital pictures.
A typical commercial application of SR is in fact crime scene investigation, since real digital resolution enhancements is very much on the horizon and unclear objects that are blurred for example by artifacts can be uncovered with the technology. The resolution of pictures taken with cell phones will be enough for poster-sized prints and low-resolution videos transmitted via a cellphone could be reconstructed to DVD quality movies.
